Priesthorpe School, Leeds

This project included the relocation of the school gym into a purpose built hall, the demolition of the arts department, which had been temporary accommodation for years, with its relocation in to the original school’s gym site. It also included re-roofing of the majority of the original school single storey building and the remodelling of the access road into the site to create a safe entrance for Transport and pedestrians. Also included was the creation of a new school entrance and the reconstruction of the IT department.

The project involved the temporary re-housing of a significant section of the school population whilst the modernisation works were in progress.

Civils work involved the design of the new access road, drainage and the remodelling of the junction onto the A6120, Farsley Ring Road.

The Solution

The proposed scheme to refurbish and extend the existing Secondary School in Leeds to provide new state of the arts facilities.

Encon Associates provided an initial Pre-Assessment under BREEAM Education to assist the Design Team to ensure the specification for the new building would meet the BREEAM 'Very Good' rating.  An Assessment was then carried out for full compliance under the BREEAM Eductation process.
